Brees had been sidelined for several weeks due to an injury. The Saints were steadfast in their efforts to ensure that he would only return when he was healthy.
Without Brees, Taysom Hill was named the starter. He’s believed to be the team’s starting quarterback when Brees retires to take a job at NBC Sports.
Brees was out of the lineup due to more than 10 broken ribs. In addition, he had a punctured lung.
He was hit late in the second quarter against the San Francisco 49ers that sidelined him. Jameis Winston came in to replace Brees for the second half of the game.
The former Purdue Boilermakers signal caller has been out for the injury for the past month. Without him, the team went 3-1.
The only loss came this past Sunday to the Philadelphia Eagles in Jalen Hurts NFL debut as a starting quarterback. Hurts guided his team to a 24-21 win.
As a starter this season, he guided the Saints to a 7-2 record. He made nine starts before leaving with his injury.
He has gone 219 of 298 for 2,196 passing yards. He also has 18 touchdown passes and three interceptions.
